Advice From a Psychiatric Nurse

Charcoal clouds thunder heavy rains- the glowing eye of New Mexico's sky is bandaged, cushioned with silver. Sliding drops of rain glide silken down her wrists mixed with red colors of sunsets in June, as is the month in her mind. October is black; September yellow gold orange, the month of her birth is green with white- grey mixed in as stripes, curving like the road she lost herself on. Moon rises with the evening star, night suns. Visit New Mexico, view the skies- diamond cut nights and sunsets spread colors expanding like the universe. A sky writes her poem, flinging her winged soul into fresh air startling, a flock of birds taking off, soaring. It is dewy softness suspended, after the rain. The colors are rainbows reversed or upside down, watercolors by a prodigy

Absolutely beautiful. I've heard many things & seen many beautiful pics about NM. I may drive there one day, since I'm in Cali myself. Your lines captured its home & foundation very strongly.
